Lebanon United is a London-based group that raises money and awareness to
support humanitarian, educational and sustainable development initiatives in
Lebanon. We are staffed entirely by volunteers.
Lebanon United was formed during the July-August 2006 conflict which resulted in
extensive destruction and lost opportunities. We responded by coordinating a
large number of humanitarian fundraising initiatives in London at the time.
Since August 2006, we have slowly shifted our focus from
humanitarian projects to educational and sustainable development initiatives.
To provide the Lebanese community in London and abroad
with an accessible platform through which to finance humanitarian,
educational and sustainable development initiatives in Lebanon
To foster a sense of community amongst Lebanese living in
London through shared cultural and social events
To assist like-minded groups in other countries by
sharing resources, skills and know-how
To encourage those who wish to organise fundraising
events by supporting their ideas
To be transparent in all our actions and procedures
Achievements to Date
Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers and supporters in London and abroad,
LU has raised approximately £120k ($240k) for Lebanon by organising innovative
